Excerpt: NIKON D3100 - THE CAMERA THAT TEACHES YOU HOW I got my first DSLR camera in December, at first i was adamant i was going to get a canon, this is because the rest of my family own them and they are what i am used to and comfortable with. In Jessops (it closed a week later!) a man fronting the Nikon cameras told me the camera had great grip, HD Video capture, top quality HD images and that it was the best camera to buy for my first DSLR and after a few weeks after my...
Excerpt: First of all, I am using Nikon D3100 for 2 years and i am still really happy by its results. First thing i would like to say is that Nikon D3100 has 14.2 Megapixels. it has a better image quality than any other starter-level products. it can shoot 1080p resolution video with 24fps and has the feature of continuous focusing during the video. the body itself is 505g and it is very small.
Pros: really light and you can really get impressed from the results despite it is starter - level product
Cons: has a bad back - screen and is unsatisfying for a professional .
Summary: Delivery was good. I was up and running quite quickly. There's a lot in this camera, so there's lots to experiment with; it'll take a while before I'm into it properly. So far, so good, on auto settings. I tried continuous for the first time in a birds of prey flying display, and got a few good shots among the expected not-so-good ones.
Summary: Really enjoying my first DSLR. Mostly used in auto with fantastic results. Crystal clear pics and also tried some special effects. It's easy to use, lens changing is really quick and simple. It's great value for money and great as a first or advanced DSLR camera.
